I was only on Linked In very briefly before I started my business at home, but isn't that what the site is for, to reach out to potential employers and network with colleagues? What do you have to lose?
Well I believe that's part of it. I applied for the job on the company website. Then I found the information for the hiring manager and the HR director on linkedin and sent them both "inmail" letting them know that I had applied for the job already and what some of my job related skills are. I know you are supposed to reach out to people, but this is my first time and I'm just wondering how seriously they take it and if anyone has had any success with it.
